God I love watching the heads of the right-wing explode.

Not a criminal act, just a sign of this man’s silly ego. Someone should film him at the hairdresser, take the tough guy wind out of his sails.

Well, we all have conflicts. “Such” a “State”!

When the exact words do not match Scalia’s preferences, he magically transports himself back in time into the minds of the law’s writers and announces their binding intent.

We’re ever so lucky to have him on our Supreme Court, what with those amazing skills…

Once settled, the idea’s worth is either established as the law of the land, or rejected. Justices Scalia and Thomas, et al, seem to have difficulty accepting the fact that their arguments are without sufficient merit to carry the day. The power and truth of a political concept lies not in its popularity or divine provenance, but in its fundamental fairness for the greatest number of citizens. Majority rule is tyranny without recourse to a judicial system that can eliminate restrictions on minorities based soley on irrational, emotional, religious or capricious tenets. Thank whatever god you worship, or the ‘force,’ for allowing reason and fairness to triumph over bigotry and repression.

Actually Congressional intent is a part of what the Supreme Court does. Moreover, even the ‘clear language’ crowd would be in no better position with their case, because clear language means taking the ‘entire’ context of the law, not cherry picking one line in isolation of every other reference, including countless portions of the law that would completely invalid were the ‘state’ reference to mean ‘non-federal’.

If he’s that unhappy, he should just quit. He clearly resides on the loony fringe anyway.
